Nothing matches the sheer elegance of a wedding at Hatfield House venues. Whether you are looking for a small intimate wedding or a large celebration, we can accommodate your wishes to create your perfect special day.
Set within the wonderful surroundings of Hatfield Park and charged with history, our venues offer a unique atmosphere for your wedding. You may choose from the magnificent Grade I listed Old Palace, where Elizabeth I held her first Council of State, or the Riding School with its stylish contemporary interior, flooded with natural light. The choice is entirely yours.
However you choose to make or celebrate your vows, it is your day and everyone here at Hatfield House will do everything they can to ensure it’s the most unforgettable day of your life.
The Hatfield House hospitality team is highly experienced and will provide all the help and support you need throughout the preparation and on the day of your wedding.
Civil Marriage Ceremonies - Both the Old Palace and the Riding School are licensed for civil ceremonies.
Wedding Receptions - We can accommodate up to 300 for a Cocktail Party, 250 for a seated luncheon or dinner, or 200 for dinner with dancing. The rooms are flexible and can be arranged for a smaller number to feel comfortable.
We pride ourselves on offering a high standard of catering and a variety of menus to cater for a range of tastes. We use the best fresh local produce wherever possible, and offer a selection of good quality wines at competitive prices. Evening buffets are also available.
Our executive chef will be happy to design a menu for you, or you may like to choose from our suggested menus.
You may also want to make the most of the Old Palace atmosphere and have an Elizabethan reception for your wedding, with a banquet where your guests can attend in period costumes.
